182: Embracing Stillness, Processing Trauma, & Empowering Mental Health Through Sound with Vivianne Pearson

by neeta bhushan


Quote: “Be still because in your stillness, that’s when you’re able to identify, that’s when you’re able to tap in and awaken any of the disturbances, anything that’s withholding you, anything that’s truly holding you back from being the best version of yourself or who you’re becoming it gets loud when you’re still..”
– Vivianne Pearson
